Garmin Wifi Adapter

Wi-Fi Adapter Kit

The Marine Wi-Fi Adapter Kit provides a dedicated Wi-Fi connection between a compatible chartplotter and applicable Garmin apps downloaded to mobile digital devices

Paired with the BlueChart Mobile app, it allows you to remotely transfer routes, waypoints and more from your iPad or iPhone to your networked chartplotter. Once underway, the adapter will allow Apple mobile digital devices to "follow the boat" along its route by wirelessly sharing the GPS location from the marine network. This is the most accurate way for passengers to see the boat's progress and position from anywhere on the boat.

The Marine Wi-Fi Adapter Kit also will allow the pairing of a compatible Garmin chartplotter with Garmin Helm. This free application allows you to view and control compatible Garmin chartplotters from your iPhone or iPad. The app provides enhanced situational awareness for mariners. In multiple GPSMAP 8000 series chartplotter installations, Garmin Helm provides thumbnail screen previews of each chartplotter screen to allow easy selection. Easily switch between portrait and landscape mode to accommodate mounting preferences. Using your Apple device, you can even record a movie of your chartplotter screen to share with friends and family. Use up to 5 iPhone or iPad devices simultaneously with GPSMAP 8000 series.

The adapter kit includes power supply options for both AC and DC, which also includes 2 Power Over Ethernet (POE) injectors for use with AC or DC power.

Least painful boat upgrade ever September 8, 2014
Reviewer: Tim K from Seattle, WA  
This kit works surprisingly well with my GPSMAP 4212. With good access to DC power leads, it's easy to install. I was expecting Garmin troubleshooting and incompatibility hell, but after powering up and entering the right config in my iPad wifi settings, transferring routes, waypoints, etc "just worked." A couple gotchas discovered as I have used it more: (1) The 4212 has very limited route memory and the transfer isn't very smart about merging. On a recent cruise, it appeared that transfers weren't working. It turned out that the 4212 memory had filled up and it was silently failing. Once I deleted on the routes on the 4212 and transferred everything from the Ipad, all is well. The lesson is master everything on your ipad and aggressively delete the stuff on your plotter to get rid of duplicate entries. (2) If you join another wifi network with your Ipad, you can't talk to your Garmin. You have to find the obscurely named network in the list of wifi networks and explicitly join it.
